Traffic crashes are the leading cause of teen death in America. Encourage your students to create a public service announcement (PSA) for the 2014 Drive2Life Contest to show what teens can do to prevent, avoid, and get out of an impaired-driving situation.

      • One Grand Prize winner will receive $1,000 and a trip to New York City to see his or her vision turned into a 30-second PSA.
      • Four runners-up will each receive $500.
